The ever-increasing proliferation of numerous large, sometimes huge, sometimes connected data bases in government, industrial, and private sectors is keeping data mining at the forefronts of study and research in science, business, security, and government. Concerns over the use and misuse of detailed records of, for example people’s medical history, purchase transactions, telephone and internet usage, are reinforcing the needs to address the privacy and security implications of data-mining projects. At the same time, the evolution of data mining will provide novel and valuable insights into large data sets that otherwise would not be practical or possible to obtain in widely diverse areas of application. There is also much new to report and learn in the related and supporting areas of communications and information technology. The 4th International Conference on Data Mining, Communications and Information Technology will bring together researchers and practitioners giving them opportunities to present new ideas, learn and discuss latest research results, and network with key players from academia, industry, and government. The conference will take place in Beijing, a world capital where participants can experience the great history, culture, and cuisine of China. On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to invite you to participate in DMCIT 2020. We are nearing completion of an exciting and engrossing program covering several key aspects of data mining and supporting knowledge from communications and information technology.
I look forward to your contribution to making DMCIT 2020 a success, and to meeting you in Beijing!
